Hi, I’m Pam

I have suffered from small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) for at least 5 years, maybe longer.

My story might seem different from yours at first, but we all share the commonalities of suffering and waiting too long for a clear diagnosis and effective treatment. We share the same frustrations, emotions, and fears. I hope, as you read my story, that you will see your own and feel validated.

The small bowel should be a fast-flowing organ. SIBO occurs in instances when the small bowel does not clear itself properly by flowing or draining as it should. SIBO is not a primary disease, but rather a consequence of another condition that causes slowing of the small bowel—most often, food poisoning.”
